it is in the interest of israel. i just do not think it is smart for israel." who'd like to comment on that? guest: there has been a lot of suggestion that senator chuck hagel might be anti-semitic. i have no way of knowing and i doubt very seriously he is. what is troubling about that quote is not so much the jewish lobby, a different way of saying something -- the israel lobby or ever. the most troubling part of that quote has to do with the fact that it goes on to say, i am a u.s. senator and not the senator from israel. the troubling part of that is the subtle suggestion that if you disagree with him about policy, u.s. policy toward israel and the middle east, somehow that you are, there is a loyal to question at stake there, that those who disagree with him are not beholden to the u.s. and the constitution as much as, also thinking they have a duty towards israel. i think that is going to be something the senators are going to ask him about. host: let me brief you about what eron david miller writes in "the washington post" from an interview he did in 2006. he says it 'senator chuck hagel is
senator, just came out in support of chuck hagel. >> right. >> but there are a bunch of democratic pro-israel leaders like chuck schumer, bob casey, frank lautenberg, carl levin who have yet to weigh in and might have some concerns and bob menendez, the proor the anti-iran hawk. talk about their concerns right now. >> i have looked hard at the statements on the internet and the blogs and what he's said. chuck hagel said my first obligation is to the united states. i took an oath of office to defend the united states constitution. that doesn't mean he's anti-israeli. i have israeli friends, i support the israeli nation and defending themselves. however, break dot-dot, you know, you have to look at what's best for this nation first and how that's anti-semitic i don't know and that's the issue as far as i can tell regarding the rhetoric of hagel. >> john, another issue of particular of those like me on the left is hagel's comments that he made back in 1998 opposing president clinton's ambassador or nominee to be ambassador calling him openly aggressively gay and recently apologized for the comme
in the middle east, israel. an air attack across the syrian border. everyone waiting for what happens next. abc's steve global affairs correspondent martha raddatz tracking it for us tonight. martha? >> reporter: diane, this is a very significant move and clearly a red line for israel. this is what we know. officials say truckloads of dangerous weapons were being loaded from a facility in syria and then were headed for lebanon. officials say inside those trucks were fa-17s. those are very capable, mobile radar-guided surface to air missiles. israel little war planes were launched to destroy the trucks and stop them from entering lebanon before the militant group hezbollah could get their hands on them. the building where the trucks were loading and departing was also hit. hezbollah is a swosh enemy of israel. if hezbollah had gotten those missiles, it would have significantly increased their capability in any future conflict with israel. so, this was not israel getting involved in the conflict in syria, per se, it was very much israel making a preemptive strike to protect itself. but this will
threatening to retaliate against israel after israeli forces launched an airstrike inside syria taking out what they were say sophisticated surface-to-air missiles bound for the terror group hezbollah in lebanon. remember a few days ago a top iranian official said any attack on syria would be deemed an attack on iran. boy, this one could get very tense. we're watching it closely. kt will join us on that one. bill: a little bit under the radar so to speak. we'll see what happens next. we're getting going. minutes from now the confirmation hearing for defense secretary nominee chuck hagel starts in washington. first we will talk with someone doing the questioning. oklahoma senator jim inhofe will join us. is happy with hagel? you will hear from him. martha: just hours after a report that the economy actually shrunk for the first time in years this quarter, the white house says it knows why this happened. wait until you hear who they are blaming. bill: there is outrage in the city of chicago. gun violence claiming the life of a promising teenager just back from the inauguration in washington,
of israel. let me share with you when -- one wuote -- in the end, if nothing works, the president will use military power against iran. i am sure of it. that is an interview with shimon peres, the discussion of u.s.- israeli relations and the situation in iran. that is available online as well. let's go back to your calls on the issue of congress being bypassed to raise the debt limit. the hill newspaper, a letter written by senate democrats -- they sent a letter to the president saying at if republicans in congress threatened to shut down the federal government, the president should invoke section 4 of the 14th amendment and raise the debt ceiling by himself sean joins us from scotch plains, new jersey. caller: hello, it is john. the president can invoke the 14th amendment. there is a thing in 1941, 3102 puts the trigger on the 14th amendment. the president has it within his ability and right to do such, but additionally, under george w. bush, he invoked, he signed into law a presidential directive number 20, and there's a section in their that also assists, the helping out for making sur
to the israel lobby, he has come under fire from the left, or some -- anti-gay comments, perceived that way by a lot of people. does that make a potential confirmation battle even more difficult for him. >> you are killed by a thousand cuts, politically, or businesswise. obviously, you pointed out two or three cuts, if there will be more, it will be difficult. it will be a difficult nomination to be confirmed. but we will have to wait and see. i can't predict, as i said. but obviously, it will be probably some people say, tough going. >> he has a reputation, correct me if i am wrong, as an iconoclast. some have said the controversial comments may be him pushing the envelope of outside-the-box thinking. is that a rationalization for the comments he has made? >> probably so. you have to remember he is a combat veteran. he was in the reagan cabinet. he was a deputy secretary of veterans afairks i believe. he -- affairs, i believe. he has been a two-term senator. served on the intelligence committee with me. he served on the banking committee. he has been around. he understands the system. will
big questions about his commitment to supporting our principal ally namely the state of israel. >> talking about chuck hagel. his comments about israel and about iran and hamas, one of hagel's supporters we quoted on friday, steve clemens was on our show today, quote, there seems to be an effort by israel and supporters over and over to continue to run resolutions to say, how much do you love me america? do you love me today, do you love me tomorrow and do you love me again. i am supportive of israel but i'm not going to zero game between israel and neighbors, but also have vital national security relationships with the united states let's bring in our panel. steve hayes, juan williams and charles krauthammer. steve? >> i think the quote you read is offensive. its clownish view of what people have been arguing both with respect to protecting national security but the threat that iranian poses to the united states of america. i think one of the areas in which hagel has shown himself to be president obama's left, and he has in a variety of different places, is the question of ira
chuck hagel because he has a, quote, problem with israel. senator dan coates said chuck hagel has had so much disrespect for the military which is a pretty rich thing to say about a veteran. he would lack experience he would need for the job. senator mccain says his colleague barely even counts as a republican. senator mark kirk says he is, quote, concerned about mr. hagel. mr. hagel also faces opposition from the democratic side for the time back in 1998 when he opposed an ambassador nominee for being what mr. hagel described at the time openly aggressively guy, for which he finally apologized last month. there is also opposition to a lesser extent just because chuck haguele is a republican. this is not ideological opposition. it's partisan. but in the technical sense of that. why is it that democratic presidents always appoint republicans to run the pentagon, but republican presidents never appoint democrats to do the same? why would democrats do that again? why would democrats keep underscoring that caricature that republicans are the only ones to be trusted on defense? you can see ju
their biggest threat. the escalating violence now raising serious concerns about israel's security. leland vittert is in go land heights, an area between israel and syria. are the rebels making any gains? >> reporter: right now so far there is a lot of bang, bang, that's what we are seeing in the video the rebels are posting online. not a lot of strategic games. the rebels are tries trying to lay siege to three to four regime air bases in the north that are used to bomb rebel position and also resupply government troops. these one of the things the rebels are trying to deny. the government forces are hitting back and so far have repullsed these rebels in each one of the instances. the thing to note when you're watching the video is how much better armed the rebels are because they've stolen weapons from the government cases they've taken over before and who the fighters are is increasing a lot of concern around the middle east and the world. as we're learning the best fighter inside of syria are the al-qaida syndicate groups, al-qaida traders in iraq or the jihaddists, foreign fighters bro
was announcing israel would have to act. i think obama is going to have to face that either to prevent the israelis in some way or to give a red light or to think of contingencies israelis attacked how the u.s. will react. >> you will likely see senator kerry take over for senator clinton likely a shoe in. chuck hagel may have a bumpyer ride but will likely be confirmed as secretary of defense. you see a different foreign policy with those people key positions for president obama's second term? >> no question about it. first and foremost what you see not only with kerry but with john brennan now playing a key role is there is more of an effort to one slim down the size of the defense and military footprint the united states has worldwide. i think that is on the democratic budget side that is a priority. slim down spending. as a matter of foreign policy that the military and use of military force should not be the first option. i think that is what you see from hagel and kerry. of course the reinvention the cia will change as well as part of the equation. let me say that i think the adm
was in the senate, about israel. in a 2006 interview with former middle east convoy david miller, hagel said the following: >> i'm a united states senator. i'm a united states senator. [inaudible] >> hagel favored direct talks with iran and is one of two senators to vote against sanctioning iran. members of the senate armed services committee are questioning the president's choice. >> hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. not only has he said you should directly negotiate with iran, sanctions won't work, that israel must negotiate with hamas, an organization, terrorist group that lobbed thousands of rockets into israel. >> his defenders point to his two purple hearts in vietnam. >> hagel is a tremendous patriot and statesman, served incredibly in vietnam, served this country as a united states senator. he hasn't had a chance to speak for himself. why all the prejudging, i don't know. >> the senate officially rejected nine cabinet nominations since 1834. the last cabinet nominee r
was uncomfortable with. >>> several republican lawmakers have considered hagel's stand on israel and hamas. >> chuck hagel if confirmed for secretary he of defense would be the most antagonistic for the state of israel in history. >> he served incredibly in vietnam, served this country as the united states senator and he has not had a chance to speak for himself. >> hagel can vote and is aimed at some sanctions and he is replacing leon panetta who is stepping down. >>> secretary clinton was released and a was admitted when they followed up on a concussion she suffered in december. she will participate in events for ahmed wali karzai visit on friday. >>> lots of people as we talked about earlier are heading back, let's check in with sal on traffic, good morning sal. >>> good morning, pam, and brian and it looks good so far. we are going to be much whatting a lot later and let move on you can see the golden gate bridge is going well and just be careful as you drive to the toll plaza and they will be going across the bridge in the next half hour. also looking at the bay bridge toll plaza which is light
and neighbors like israel that are going to be profoundly affected by it. and so it's true sometimes that we don't just shoot from the hip. >> so richard haass, is this payback for, let's say, bill clinton doing such a great job for the obama campaign? >> we're speculating. >> people are still going back and saying the most important speech of that campaign was the one given by bill clinton, without question. that was the turning point for the -- i mean, i say turning point, those guys were pounding republicans who they were targeting from the very beginning, but that was really when america just, i think, turned. bill clinton captured the moment and defended the presidency. >> well, it's clear that bill clinton's support for the president helped his re-election both at the convention and beyond the convention. you're asking me to speculate on something i simply don't know anything about. >> well, that's what we do here. >> sorry. >> how long you been coming here? >> secretary of state leaving office, the president does a joint interview? >> i've never seen it before. the secretary of speech is
israel. >> rick, in this case, the investment mean what way they perform for us in our interest and not in their own? >> yes, you are looking for quality performance, you will be happy to know that the obama administration put in the staunchest problem to do that. i want to be david when i grow up. here is the report. there is tough measures. >> good role model. >> i couldn't agree more. one problem to recognize, certain amount of the foreign aid goes to places where we might not want to know where it is going to accomplish the goals we need to accomplish . do we want to consider exposing everything. >> money going to egypt run by the muslim brotherhood. >> tipecal of secretary clinton. when there is a problem throw more money at it and most foreign aid is a waste of money it may be military aid to friends. but it hinders economic development and does not promote it. >> you heard that egypt will get f-16 fighter jets and again going to the muslim brotherhood, is that right? >> no. it is not right and give it to strengthen our embassy and military presence. this country feels tha
it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let me start with this. even john boehner said now is the time to deal with immigration. but, you know the questions you were just talking about. is will some of your colleagues on the far right, tea partyiers, perhaps, support this path to citizenship for illegal immigrants? >> well, you know, jackie kucinich had it exactly right. this has the prospect of s success. it's all about whether house republicans are willing to stand up to the tea party base. you've got a bipartisan group of senators left and right advocating a path forward. you've got the president of the united states who will unveil his views on a path forward. what this comes down to now is will these house republicans who have pandered to their intolerant tea party base, who have fed into the extremism of that tea party base, are they willing to stand up to the tea party and do what's right for america? we'll see whether they're able to amass the votes

a shipment of weapons to the anti-israel militant group hezbollah in neighboring lebanon. the vice premier of israel warned if there's any signs that seeria was losing its grip on chemical weapons there would be military air strikes. no reports that there were chemical weapons in this strike, the associated press saying it's anti-aircraft missiles. the first time israel has fired into syria since 2007. definitely represents an escalation of the situation there. syria, of course, in the midst of a raging civil war. back to you. >> thanks, michelle. our next guest has analysis of america's fiscal situation and the takeaway is this. despite our debt fast approaching $17 trillion, spending cuts will actually make matters worse. >> and the reason is it's getting so much attention is that john makin, a noted conservative economist, and is a resident scholar at the american enterprise institute. also with us is lindsey piegsa, an economist at ftn financial, and she sees things a little bit differently. john, we'll go to you first because the headline there is you mean to tell me a conservative ec
. militant organization and political party that has vowed israel's destruction and has strong ties to syria and iran. this comes less than a week after an aid to iran's supreme leader claimed that an attack on syria is an attack on iran itself. with that as our beginning "the fox report" correspondent jonathan hunt is here. the israelis had promised to act if syria moved weapons or used weapons and it looks like they have acted. >> yeah, the israeli government is becoming increasingly worried about the flow of weapons. or the potential flow from the chaos of syria over to israel's northern border. so much so that they recently moved some of their batteries of the iron dome intercepter missile system to the north of the country now it appears that they decided that defense is not enough. they have gone on the attack. hitting this done i have which we believe to have been between u.s. officials somewhere between 3 and 6 trucks about to cross the border from syria into lebanon. apparently carrying surface-to-air missiles. we do not have confirmation on what would be a second strike because the

in 2000, a number of senators signed a letter reaffirming their position to help israel. jim inhoff of oklahoma says hagel was one of four who would not sign the letter and pointed to his apparent willingness to negotiate with iran, something the pentagon has been against. >> too often it seems he's willing to subscribe to a worldwide view that's predicated on appeasing our add ver sayries while shunning our friend -- adversaries while shunning our friends. >> reporter: another thing being discussed with a global movement to eliminate nuclear weapons. hagel has written about it and support it but those against him say the u.s. would be vulnerable and that other countries would find a way to hide their nuclear weapons and use them. this hearing continues. more when i see you next. kyla campbell, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. >>> the senate is expected to approve legislation today allowing the treasury department to keep borrowing money for four more months. the house passed a bill that extends the debt ceiling through may 18th. the legislation also requires both the house and th

hear the israeli government is telling model would look like this...to take a hike. models in israel new need to look more like this. i am kind of thinking which i prefer. should women be a fan of this ban? a therapist says absolutely. what do you think of this? >>guest: i think this is an exlength -- excellent law. young girls have body image issues and eating disorders. we do have to regulate the industry, the advertising industry. >>neil: in israel, they are taking it a step further saying you cannot show it or be in the industry with that kind of look because it is unnaturally and unhealthy. but where is the line teen not allowing it on the left and allow it on the right. five pounds? what? >>guest: what i love about this law it is only the super skinny models that are banned from advertisement with body mass index of 18.5 or lower are not allowed so if you are 5' 8" that is 120 pounds. the other thing i love, a law says they, if they photo shop, or higher a bigger model, and make her smaller they have to print that in the ad. >>neil: a lot of model i-have interviewed for researc
hearing is on friday. you're just back from israel. what is the view there now? >> well, the israelis are very cautious about not saying anything. you know, there was this whole business about interfering about the netanyahu government. they're being hyper cautious about not saying anything. that said there's a lot of worry that he is you're going to distance or work to distance the united states from israel, and that's kind of right beneath the surface. i don't think it's true, but i think this is what the worry is. >> today the president called benjamin netanyahu to congratulate him on his majority. >> i'm looking forward to their joint interview on "60 minutes." that's going to be very cuddly, i'm sure. >> at the same time do you think that a john kerry state department is going to be more engaged in trying to push the israeli-palestinian track, or does everything now depend on what happens in egypt? >> this is very interesting. there's going to be a lot of pressure on president obama from everyone from the king of jordan to the british prime minister. >> there already is. >> to re

. guest;: gcritics of hagel have thinkery pro-israel, who he is not sufficiently committed to israel. another group thinks he has not drawn hard enough lines against iran and its nuclear program. others think he is too soft on a rant -- on iran. as come from a moderate, realist wing of the republican party, -- he does come from a moderate, realist wing of the republican party. brent go kroft -- brent scowcroft has come out in support of hagel. it is realist and it is cautious. that probably comports with the obama doctrine he -- we have talked about. we need to be cautious about overextending ourselves. i think chuck hagel will be commensurate with that view. host: and syria? caller: i feel like they base what they say based on substantiated evidence. on syria, why is it that we -- they have written that 50% of the syrian people support assad. they have written about egypt. i think it was egypt, saudi arabia, turkey, and iran trying to form a group to communicate with assad. host: who is "they"? caller: syria, egypt, saudi arabia -- it was iran and turkey would sit down with assad ab
overseas where israel made a rare military strike against one of its neighbors, syria. here is abc's global affairs correspondent martha raddatz with more. >> reporter: officials say truck loads of dangerous weapons were being loaded from a facility in syria and then headed for lebanon. officials say inside those trucks were sa-17s, those are very capable, mobile, radar-guided surface-to-air missiles. israeli war planes were launched to destroy the trucks and stop them from entering lebanon before the militant group hezbollah could get their hands on them. the building where the trucks were loading or departing was hit. hezbollah is a sworn enemy of israel. if hezbollah had gotten those missiles it would have significantly increased their capability in any future conflict with israel. this was not israel getting involved in the conflict in syria, per se. it was very much israel making a preemptive strike to protect itself. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> i think that's important because early reports sort of were, were suggesting that perhaps i had real was getting involved in the
